MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A ban on liquids carriage in aircraft passenger cabins will be effective on January 11, an official of the Transport Ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Information on additional security measures during passengers’ pre-flight inspection should be gotten to the transport infrastructure and airlines, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said in a telegram to leaders of the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) and the Federal Transport Supervision Service (Rostransnadzor).
“Russian passengers were banned to carry liquids in aircraft of any size (containers, tubes etc), including less than 100 mL, with the exception of medications, special dietary needs, baby food (mother’s milk), as are needed to get through a flight. Mentioned requirements do not spread on items, which are purchased at controlled areas, including in Duty Free shops,” the telegram says.
These measures are being taken to protect civil aviation facilities from acts of unlawful interference during preparations for and holding of the XXII Olympic Games and XI Paralympics Games 2014 in Sochi, the telegram says.
Corresponding changes will be made to the pre-flight and post-flight inspection rules. Rostransnadzor will supervise additional security measures.
